This stuff REALLY needs to be added to the readme. I've been unconnected
for about three days, but when I made the change everything started up
again. I've also mentioned this in previous postings to this group, but
this is the first time I've gotten an explanation of what was happening!

Thanks, Dave

So you use need to use port 23. OK!

Then you need to use the DNS name "us23.v27.distributed.net" since
not all us.v27.distributed.net proxies can handle port 23.

See http://www.distributed.net/rc5/proxyinfo.html to see what proxies
are in what DNS.
